Preston Wilson kicks back during workouts in beautiful San Diego.
It’s an off-day, and we just came in and practiced. Everybody
did what they had to do — ran a little bit, threw a little bit, hit a little
bit, lifted weights but not too heavy. Now we’re going to go and enjoy our
families and friends and enjoy this beautiful city of San Diego. I’ll go out to dinner, take in a movie and go
to bed early because we have an early game tomorrow. It’s at 1 o’clock, so we’re going to have to be at the
field by 9 o’clock tomorrow morning.
I have some friends I’m visiting with who live out here in California.
They drove down to see me. I’ve never been to the zoo here, but there are a lot
of other great parts of this city. A lot of the restaurants out here are just
wonderful. The atmosphere is great. Obviously the weather is beautiful. It’s
outrageous. I can’t even explain it.
Everybody used to always tell me, ‘You’ve got to go to San Diego.’ And I was always like, ‘Are you serious?’ People
would say, ‘Believe me, when I say it’s the best city, it’s the best city.’ And
now I believe it. I enjoy myself a lot here. Everything is walking distance
from the ballpark and the hotel. If you need to take a cab, you can, but I usually
ride those little bicycle cabs where you sit in the back. It’s fun doing that. San
Diego itself is beautiful.
I’m eager to get a chance to get my feet wet in this
postseason, but it’s like I said last year. Whatever position they put me in, I’ll
be ready. If I start, I start. If I come off the bench, I’ll be ready for that
too. I just prepare myself every day coming to the field like I’m in that
lineup. If I’m not, I just have to prepare myself in other ways. I always come
to the field thinking as though I’m starting.
